Das Boot DVD - 1981 film directed by Wolfgang Petersen. This German masterpiece recreates the tension and claustrophobic conditions of 43 men assigned to a U-boat in 1941. Gritty, realistic, and peppered with black humour, this is one of the few sympathetic portrayals of the war from the German side to be released in western distribution. Rated R - Starring Juergen Prochnow, Herbert Groenemeyer and Klaus Wennemann. Audio tracks in English, German or Spanish. Subtitles in English, French or Spanish.
